Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - May 2018

Firstly I have something to mention to you before I give details of winners of the last challenge and details of the new challenge.

There are new regulations coming into force in Europe on 25 May 2018 regarding general data protection. These changes will mean that the monthly challenge post showing details of the winner of the Monthly Blog Challenge, winner of the Artist Choice Award and the details of the Guest Designer for a future challenge WILL NOT have direct links to their blogs. I shall continue to show the winner’s cards as entered into Linky Tools but it will be the responsibility of the winners to make contact to claim their prizes using the e-mail contact on the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog.

Those crafters that enter the Monthly Blog Challenge and add their details into Linky Tools do so in the knowledge that their names and blog links are visible to all who visit the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog and it is considered that the crafter’s consent that their name and blog link are visible to all visiting the blog and could appear in the following month’s post if they are one of the winners or a future Guest Designer.

If you make a comment on the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog you understand that your name and blog link will be visible for others to see.

To make sure that this Blog is compliant with the new laws come 25 May 2018 these changes will be made immediately.
*********************************
 Thank you to all those crafters that entered last months' challenge.

To enter this challenge you need to use a rubber stamp or digital stamp (black-and-white/grayscale or partially pre-coloured). 
Just coloured in images are NOT allowed.
NO fully digital cards are allowed. 
 As mentioned anyone that entered that used an image from the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store would get a second entry into the draw. 

The winner of 2 digital images from the Etsy Store is:
No 4 and that card has been created by Lillian.  This is the card that Lillan made:
Congratulations Lillian.  

Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 2 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.
 Every month there is an "Artist's Choice Award".  The winner of this award will be picked by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.  To be in with a chance of winning this award you need to use one of Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps from her Etsy Store for your card/creation.  At the end of the month Ching-Chou Kuik will look at all those cards/creations using one of her digital stamps from the Etsy Store and pick one winner that will get the "Artist's Choice Award" and will also get to pick 5 digital stamps of their choice from the Etsy Store.

Ching-Chou Kuik certainly had a lot of beautiful cards/creations to choose from but the winner of the "Artist's Choice Award" for April 2018 is No 12:
and that card has been created by Jackie Cornfield.

Congratulations Jackie.

Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 5 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.

Now is the time to reveal the name of the Guest Designer for June 2018.

The lucky winner is Jackie Cornfield.  

I will be in touch shortly with details of the challenge and to ask you to pick an image from the Etsy Store to use for your card/creation as a "thank you" for being the Guest Designer.

Today sees the start of another challenge.

For the month of May 2018 the challenge is:

Just coloured in images are NOT allowed.
NO fully digital cards are allowed. 


Don't forget if you would like to be a Guest Designer for a forthcoming challenge please remember to add "GDT" after you name in the Linky Tools or add a comment in the comment box.


Please remember when linking to this challenge you MUST link to your blog post and not just your actual blog.  


As you have taken the time to create something to enter into the challenge the Design Team members like to leave you comments but this is made more difficult when they have to look through your blog to find the right card/creation to comment on.  


Thank you for your understanding.
